Playing "let's imagine" is so much easier than playing "let's actually look."

Isn't it though? Just to be clear... you're the only person here imagining that.

I suggested the British tabloids would be up in arms and screaming blue murder if Ireland made a decision that caused as much harm to the UK as brexit is causing us. I suggested the tabloids and those in their comments sections would be making extreme statements and extreme demands.

I certainly didn't suggest there'd be actual carpet-bombing. You did that all yourself.

But maybe you think The Sun and The Mail, along with their already virulent readers-comments sections, would take such a set of circumstances calmly. Perhaps you think Nigel Farage and the tory right wing would be taking a measured approach and not making any inflammatory statements at all.

And you are more than welcome to think those things. But I suspect most of the "imagining" is happening at your end.
